If I were a betting man, I would wager that all of us have a picture in our minds of what angels look like. If you were brought up learning Bible stories, maybe you can still remember the pictures of angels on the pages, whether it is Gabriel talking to Mary, or the angelic choir outside of Bethlehem, or an angel or two at the resurrection tomb. You can find countless examples of artistic renderings of angels in a wide variety of media, whether paintings, stained glass, mosaic or sculpture. So even if we haven’t had any confirmed angel sightings, we’ve seen enough images of angels to get a picture in our minds as soon as we hear the word.

Godly Ambition? There was a man who was a middle level executive at a decent sized company. He was known as a hard worker – a star on the rise if you will – and most things he put his hand to worked out pretty well.

It looks great; it’s the perfect cut of meat, and then you pick up the knife to make the first slice . . . and it’s not the way you wanted it done. Whether you like it rare or you like it well done, picture the opposite. Almost perfect, except for the grilling.

Illustrations of Faith - September 30, 2018

Pastor Joel Leyrer

Text: Mark 9:38-50

Watch Service Video:

Dear Friends in Christ, the Word of God we have before us today is multi-faceted and far-ranging. Jesus provides us with four individual lessons on the nature of true discipleship, all of which are important, any of which is worthy of a sermon in itself; each of which is worthy of personal application. For that reason, we’re going to look at all four of these ILLUSTRATIONS OF FAITH. But we’re going to have to do so in a bulleted, lightning round fashion. After that we’ll come back and concentrate on a particular truth embedded within one of them. So, without further introduction, let’s do just that.
